CMT Leadership Update

Dear Devotees and Members,

On May 17th, 2021, we reached a historic milestone by performing the Boomi Pooja festival for the temple. Thanks to all the leadership team and volunteers who participated, supported, and sponsored our first CMT planned event at the site. The event was well prepared,  and everyone felt the elegance and spiritual touch. It was a good feeling, and we hope that with the blessings of Lord Murugan, we will start construction soon.
Our leadership team and volunteers are planning for the Vel Deepam Festival on July 5th, 2021. This is going to be an all-day event with food and festivities. Please mark your calendar and attend this event with your family and invite your friends and relatives.

We continue our appeal to all of you for additional donations and support to fund the Phase I construction. We still need about 170K additional equity to get the construction loan. Any small donation will be of big help to us to get a loan from the bank soon.

We hear a lot of good happenings from our members. Good things happen when you are part of Carolina Murugan Temple. Please reach out to me ( if you have any questions about our initiatives and plan.

Let Lord Murugan bless you and your family with health, wealth, prosperity, and happiness.

With Best Regards,
CMT Leadership Team
